Living in Pretoria

Leafy, warm and relatively quiet, Pretoria is very different from its loud cosmopolitan neighbour, Johannesburg. About an hour away from Joburg by car, and only half an hour away on the Gautrain, many people choose to live in quieter Pretoria and commute to Johannesburg, enabling them to escape the busyness of Jozi.

Home to the University of Pretoria as well as several highly rated schools, Pretoria is a family-friendly city consisting largely of spacious residential areas where you’ll find houses of varying sizes and ages. However, because Pretoria functions as one of South Africa’s three capital cities and holds the executive branch of the South African Government, the area is not purely residential. There are a few small business hubs and several sizable shopping malls located in Pretoria as well as some apartment blocks.

Offering proximity to Johannesburg as well as a quiet and spacious home options, Pretoria is an ideal area for families as well as young professionals who prefer to live outside of the bustling city.
